Vincent Chornet

Cofounder, President and CEO, Enerkem Inc.

The guiding force behind Enerkem’s development since the company’s inception in 2000, Vincent has raised a total of C$435 million in various financings. He most recently led the opening of the company’s first full-scale production facility in Edmonton. In collaboration with the City and Alberta Innovates, this facility became the first ISCC certified plant in the world to convert municipal solid waste into biomethanol and it will expand its product offering with ethanol next year. This pioneering facility will allow the city of Edmonton to increase its waste diversion from landfill from today’s 50% up to 90%, reducing GhG emissions by 60% every year compared to gasoline, while generating sufficient biofuels to power 400,000 cars annually.
